Fans have headed to Linda’s tribute to post their own messages of condolence to Vince’s friends and family.

One fan wrote: “A man with a voice like velvet. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.”

Another said: “RIP Vince. And thinking of his family at this sad time.”

A third Twitter user referenced the fact that the entertainment industry had lost another big name recently — New York crooner Tony Bennett.

The American musician, who was, “singing at his piano” just days before his death, died at the age of 96 on July 21.

The user wrote: “Losing two big names in just a few days is terrible. Firstly Tony Bennett now Vince. A black week for the entertainment industry. May they both Rest In Peace.”

As well as Linda, Les Dennis took to social media to lead the tributes for the 89-year-old star, who was best known for his cover of Edelweiss, a hit from the 1959 musical The Sound of Music.

Upon hearing the news, the 69-year-old tweeted: “Heard the news driving home tonight and cried. Did two summer seasons with Vince.

“He was brilliant on stage and more importantly he was a lovely man. Remember visiting him and Annie at their beautiful home in Henley. They welcomed Dustin and me and we had a lovely evening. RIP X”.

Radio DJ Tony Blackburn wrote: “So sorry to hear that singer Vince Hill passed away yesterday. We were in the same agency in the 60’s and he was a very nice guy. He had a great voice and his version of Edelweiss in 1967 was a big hit. R.I.P Vince.”
